Favours obtained through Saint Josemaria's intercession
M. V., Guatemala
July 24, 2013Every month my husband pays a fixed amount for household expenses into a bank account. Two days after he had done it, I went to a cash machine to take out some money, and I got a message saying that the transaction could not be completed. As I had to make some payments, I went to the bank to get out the money directly, but there they told me that the system was not working and that was why the cash machine did not complete the operation. A week later I went to the cash machine again and there was only a small amount available. In the bank they did not believe me when I told them what had happened the week before. I took a prayer-card of St Josemaria out of my bag and prayed it while the cashier spoke to someone on the telephone. When I got to the end of it, I waited for a minute and when the cashier finished talking on the phone she told me, “Just wait for a few hours for the transaction to go through and the money will be credited to your account.” I am so grateful to St Josemaria because I know that without his intervention before God, it would have taken 20 days as it normally does to solve the problem.
On the third day of the novena
J. V., Costa Rica
July 22, 2013I was in urgent need of a job and began to pray the Novena for Work to Saint Josemaria. On the third day after starting this Novena it was granted, and now I’m working in my own speciality again. I am infinitely grateful to Saint Josemaria for the favour granted.
July 19, 2013I wanted to give thanks for a favour granted through St Josemaria’s intercession. June 26, 2013, I prayed to receive a mail with news of my son’s new address for American citizenship, because we had been having problems in this regard since February. When we went to the offices nobody took any notice of us. I read a post on Facebook and decided to say the prayer to St Josemaria. The next day we got two letters confirming that the change of address had come through. All that is now left is for him to take the oath of allegiance, and I am also praying for this through St Josemaria’s intercession.
They gave me the job
M. S. C., Argentina
July 19, 2013I wanted to tell people that I heard about St. Josemaria through a great friend of mine. She introduced me to him and I have given thanks every day since that wonderful encounter. Thanks to him, I have come back to God, and my life is much richer now with reference to faith. Next, I made a very special petition through his intercession: to get a job. On June 26 that year I had an interview. It was not easy because that day I had a terrible toothache. Afterwards I had a six-month wait until January 9 (the Opus Dei founder’s birthday) when I was told I had got the job. Thank you St. Josemaria! I am happy in my work and the people I work with every day.
Out of danger
July 17, 2013A family member was seriously ill after a severe bout of pneumonia. I prayed for her through St. Josemaria’s intercession. I kept saying the prayer-card the whole time she was in hospital: 3 weeks in intensive care and 2 more on the hospital ward. After having been at death’s door, she is now out of danger and recovering steadily. I am grateful to the founder of Opus Dei for this. Thank you!
July 16, 2013I am writing to express my gratitude to St Josemaria for all that he is doing for me. I was in a very difficult situation at work. I met a priest who is now guiding me through it. I am absolutely convinced it was St Josemaria who sent him to me. So thank you, Father!
She found she was pregnant
July 4, 2013A friend of mine had been married for 4 years and had not been able to have a baby. She told me about this and I suggested praying the prayer to Saint Josemaria every day for this favor. She was a bit prejudiced, but she agreed to do so. Two weeks after we started praying, she found she was pregnant. We attribute this favor to the founder of Opus Dei.
July 1, 2013My daughter was facing a very tough final exam that she was really nervous about, as it was not one of her best subjects. She studied hard and offered up to the Lord all the effort involved in those hours of study. I prayed to St Josemaria to help her not to panic but to keep a clear head. In the end, with God’s help, through the intercession of St Josemaria and her own studying, it all worked out. Thank you.
I got the transfer
July 1, 2013I am a teacher. I stopped working when I got married. When our youngest daughter was nine I decided to go back to work and entered for a competitive examination for a teaching post. I prayed to St. Josemaria for help as it wasn’t going to be easy – I hadn’t taught for 16 years and I was competing against teachers who were either fresh from training, or had lots of experience. Thanks to St. Josemaria’s intercession I passed the exam, but the post I was allocated was in a fairly dangerous area, affected by the violence that my country is suffering from. My husband, my children and I all asked God and the Blessed Virgin, through St. Josemaria’s intercession, for the favor of a transfer for me to a place that was nearer where we live and not so dangerous, because where I was working, we often had to teach amidst shootouts between the local gangs. Also the travelling used up a lot of time and money. To qualify for a transfer I needed to have worked at least three years in the same school. However, after just one and a half years, I got a transfer to a new school.
June 27, 2013My parents had been married for 15 years and had not been able to have children. My Mom underwent all sorts of treatments but with no success. When she was 38 she gave up trying and stopped any kind of treatment. Then a woman she met gave her a prayer-card of Saint Josemaria and she started praying it. Shortly afterwards, quite unexpectedly, she found she was pregnant with me. She had me when she was 40, and the doctors were surprised, since she wasn’t following any course of treatment. Her pregnancy was straightforward and despite my Mom’s age, I was born without any problem. My parents and I are very grateful. I would just add that I was born on September 14 – which we celebrate as the feast of the Lord of Miracles.
T. J., Mexico
June 25, 2013I have always received many favors through St Josemaria’s intercession. Like everyone’s, my business was severely affected by the economic downturn, and at that point I appointed St Josemaria as my business partner. Through his intercession, sales have increased and I no longer suffer such heavy losses.
The miracle of my daughter
June 24, 2013On January 23, 2007, I had a baby daughter. She was born with certain health problems. First I was told she had peritonitis, then that she had kidney and lung defects. Two days later the doctors said she had an enlarged heart and a grade 4 heart murmur. They told me she would not survive because she was seriously sick and there was nothing they could do. When we told this to my husband’s parents they give me a prayer-card of Saint Josemaria and told me to ask him to intercede for my daughter’s cure. My husband and I were exhausted with the strain of being in hospital and having nothing but bad news about our baby. My mother-in-law asked a priest to come and explain to me how to baptize the baby, because no-one else was allowed near her. I went in to see my little daughter, and I baptized her and said goodbye to her. I told her how much we loved her, and I left her a holy picture of Saint Josemaria with Our Lady of Guadalupe.
A sports day favour from St. Josemaria
W. V., Nederlands
June 17, 2013Sunday June 24, 2012, was the day for the second annual sports day organized by the parents of members of BeKa3 Club in Hengelo (Netherlands). It was held at the University of Twente, in the town of Enschede. The previous year’s sports day was an enormous success, because we had glorious sunshine for the sports themselves and the barbecue afterwards.
I entrusted my intentions to him
S. B.,Ivory Coast
Ivory Coast, June 13, 2013I am writing this message to thank Saint Josemaria for hearing my prayers. I heard about him on the internet when I was searching for a novena for work. After reading several testimonies, I entrusted my intentions to Saint Josemaria, asking him for help to pass my exams. I did. I thank him for it again, and now I am making a new petition through his intercession: that I get my employment contract signed.
R. A., Mexico
Mexico, June 10, 2013I would like to tell about a favor I received through St Josemaria’s intercession some time ago. 27 years ago my third child, who was three months old, was taken into Monterrey Hospital with bronchial pneumonia and cardio-respiratory arrest. He was sent straight to intensive care. I couldn’t see any sign of improvement. On the first day, the doctors who came round told my husband and me that our son had many complications and it was very possible that he might not survive. The same doctor, who was very young, asked if we were Catholics. We said yes, and he gave us a prayer-card of the Servant of God Josemaria Escriva (as he then was) and suggested we could pray through his intercession. We went straight to the church opposite the hospital to pray. The next day the ward round was at 6 a.m. The same doctor as before came out to tell us that our son had had a very good night, that he was getting much better, and that if he carried on that way, he would soon be moved out of intensive care to the ordinary ward. Finally, my son was discharged from hospital on December 29, without any after-effects from his sickness. I attribute this favor to St Josemaria Escriva, and I have entrusted myself to his intercession ever since.
